“Good food, friendly staff but no facilities (eg no proper washroom)”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

The biggest surprise to us was that there were no proper washroom facilities. There is potty party available but no sink to wash hands. This was a problem for us

We had fish and chips and it was tasty and portions were decent.The price was somewhat on the higher side than we were anticipating however I am guessing that the price was comparable with other restaurants in the area

The seating is all outdoors, so if it is cold, this can be a problem.

There were huge lineups at other places however minimal line up here

“Plenty of fresh fish”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

We were starving driving up route 6, saw the line at Arnold's and decided to find another place to have lunch.

Found this gem; monster lobster roll, and incredible 3 piece Cod fish & chips. Best I ever had, outside England. They even had malt vinegar! The very young counter girl was polite, and the food was done quickly.

There was a sign taped to the counter, "please be patient with our staff, we're tired this time of year". Thought it was funny, but we're from Monmouth Co., NJ (shore), so we know everyone is tired of the tourists by Aug., and prone to meltdown! I'll take that idea home with me!

“Average food, overpriced”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Came here for a late lunch. Cost $93 for 6 people! The food wasn't bad, but for better value, we'll stick with Arnold's.

“Good food. Quaint atmosphere”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

Was told to try this restaurant out. Decided on trying it out at lunch. The service was quick and friendly. The area was very clean. I had the clam strips and the onion rings. They were both amazing.... I loved the outdoor seating; it felt really homey. I would recommend this restaurant to others... I might return myself...

“Excellent Lobster Roll”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

Nice Place to stop when leaving the Cape for one last Lobster Roll. It is not a cheap stop, but lobster rolls are on average $18.00 each all over the Cape. Also, a great selection of live lobster to go at $8 per pound.
